***TARGET SHOPPER ALERT***

I found the cutest line of clothes at Target. I think it just launched — like, literally just rolled out! — because when I walked into the store this week, the sales associates were pulling these huge racks of clothes, and they were stocking the displays and ooh-ing and ah-ing as they hung the shirts, dresses and sweaters, which, of course, stopped me in my tracks.

The line is called Universal Thread. It’s very J.Crew-meets-Levi’s, with a sprinkle of Ann Taylor on top. There’s lots of denim and prices mostly around $25, with different cuts of jeans, different washes and — get this — different lengths. I saw short, regular and long. And some cute mid- and high-rise styles, too.

Buuuuuuut I didn’t get any jeans, LOL! I grabbed a few tops instead because 1) they were adorable (hi), and 2) I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to find my size if I hesitated, so I just went for it.

I’m head-over-heels for this light blue denim button-up shirt.

It’s comfy heavyweight 100% cotton and has two pockets on the front (also seems well made). The fit’s on the looser side, too, so it fits like a boyfriend shirt, but it isn’t over-sized or anything.

I’ve been wanting something like this for ages to layer on top of dresses and tank tops. It’s perfect! And I have a feeling it’s going to last a long time.

I also grabbed this adorable striped shirt with bell sleeves. Like the denim shirt, it’s also 100% cotton (although it’s lighter weight and airy) and feels well made.

And look…

There are buttons on the back! Isn’t that such a cute touch? I’m gonna wear this with the dark wash Levi’s I’m wearing in these pics and either hoops or threaded earrings.

I smile 🙂 every time I see the sleeves in the dark blue cotton ruffle tee at the top… Aren’t those ruffles cute? They’re so swing-y and flow-y. I think this top will look cute 💖 with a pair of shorts — perhaps a lightly distressed pair of cutoffs…or maybe a bright pair of denim shorts.

Anywho, check ’em out next time you go to Tar-ghay. The prices are reasonable (the blue tee is $17.99, denim button-up is $19.99, and the striped top with bell sleeves is $22.99), and there are other cute things, along with the jeans and shirts. I also saw dresses, sweaters, tanks, tees and lots of accessories, too.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

P.S. Oh, boy… TGIF this week, babe. BIG time. 🙂
